Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily 

I am a sucker for a skin care product. For years I neglected my face with a really basic skin care regime. A couple of years ago after using my magnifier mirror and noticing the beginnings of the aging process , faint wrinkles and signs of sun damage, my attitude towards skin care changed dramatically and without sounding like ‘I LOVE MY FACE’ , the results were incred! 

There’s a whole load of products I can’t wait to share with you but with the introduction of face pack Sunday (Ta’ Gem & Lex-the pals who shared this Sunday ritual with me) my skin quickly looked & felt mucho healthier.

I usually use charcoal based face packs or ones with Kaolin and bentonite that mattify my oily skin by adsorbing all the excess sebum (sexy greasiness) but I can’t resist a newbie on the market, especially the exotic flavours of the Boots sheet face masks. 

Over the course of the last few weeks I’ve tried all 3 and I’m actually v.impressed! All 3 mildly tingled my little face in an ‘ Oo this is actually working’ kind of way a few mins after application. I was initially upset that they weren’t quirkily scented, in retrospect though I see that as a positive as I can be sure all the products used are as natural as they portray . I put on some chilled music and had 15 mins  T.O where I literally just lay on my bed. I kid you not I could almost feel the product being absorbed by my pores. My only issue really was  that you can’t move even the tiniest facial muscle without it slipping off. Aside from that and the fact you look like you belong in a horror film for a quarter of an hour, I would highly reccomend a trial of them. They’re super soft , (tiger lily in particular)so peeling them off feels veryyy satisfying.

I rate the Rooibos,  highest. From what I gather Rooibos is a South African plant extract. I’ve only ever had it in tea but why not put it on your face!? I’ve become a bit of a night owl recently and noticed some bag-age under my eyes, it genuinely faded those darker circles and I did feel more energized post face mask.

What I liked most is that you don’t have to deal with the faff or removing all that dry mud off your face, you’re able to massage the remaining product in to your skin.  I had so much excess left in the packet I’ll moisturise with a little later in the week.

I’m  keen to try the FACEINC flower bomb face pack by Nails inc next. I’m going to invest in a few more of the Garnier moistire bombs for when my skin feels abused after a being outside post winter walks too! 

Always grateful for skincare reccomendations and reviews …
